Eileen, in happier times in the realm, did much the same thing. On earth, she and Derek go to Scotland at various times to enjoy the wonderful, sandy beaches and glorious scenery. The only thing they dislike about the place are the midges though Eileen cannot tell her husband she has known worse - in her old world the worst she faced were fire breathing dragons!
Jenny and Paul also like Scotland though they take great care not to go at the same time as Derek and Eileen. Paul feels he gets enough of his mother-in-law at home. The journey north is the one occasion in the year Jenny wishes she could use magical transportation openly so she and Paul could get the benefit of it and save themselves a hell of a lot of driving.
Hanastrew prefers the forested areas of the Kingdom and spends many of her breaks at the Palace in the Queen’s orchards. Hanastrew feels trees are the most wonderful things created regardless of world. Eileen and Fresdian would have a lot of sympathy there.
